Everything is covered with dust, workmen are in and out and water gets shut off from time to time. Even better, the way the workers get in and out of the house is through the dining room and kitchen. Thus easy pastas, soups and pizzas seem to be our go-to dinners when we eat at home. Not to say some of those pizzas haven't been on the creative side....
First there was the smaked salmon pizza made with Matt's home smoked salmon. For this one we wanted a creamy cheese, so we went with Fontina. Then added red onions and capers both things you would normally serve with salmon. This one ended up getting mixed results. I really liked it, though thought it could use more capers. Matt on the other hand thought it wasn't great, but wasn't sure what would make it better.
Next up was the Muffaletta Pizza, this one was a hands down winner. Matt topped homemade pizza dough with some slices of salami and smoked ham then added some Olive Muffaletta that he ordered from That Pickle Guy. All of that was topped with grated provolone. So tasty! But so greasy from the olives, I felt guilty having a third slice. Next time we'll try to drain the olives a little more, but we will be making this one again.
We have three more weeks of construction on the bathrooms and then a some point all our windows and doors are being replaced. Who know when we'll get back to a complete normal house?
